I read an article about self curing depression written by a doctor with 40 years experience in the space of clinical depression. The number 1 thing I took from that article was that it can be cured by natural ways. I am always up for an alternative.
We are talking about situational depression. Now I am no stranger to situations that can cause a depressive state. Anyone that lives and breaths long enough on this earth will come across situations that make you feel bad, sad and a little broken. But step one in making that feeling move on is to feel it first.
We are in a society where we don’t like to look physically sad. We would pop a pill to take away a feeling. I am of the belief if you don’t feel that feeling and mask it with a pill it will build up and make its way out somehow. Maybe that be through physical pain or later manifesting into a more serious disease. Because I know when I’m down my physical health goes down the drain. I will pick up a cold, stomach bug and so forth. I tend to think if I was in the best mind set ever I may avoid such illnesses.
Does your emotions really impact your physical health? I know digestion also plays a big part when your down. While your body craves “comfort” food, it struggles to always digest it.
Anyway I am embarking on a new chapter of positive thinking and being. For not only a happier head but happier physical health.
This is my outfit from work yesterday. It was much shorter then I remember. I got it in Singapore from New Look. It was the perfect summer dress!
